Christiane (Karuna) Santoro

Born and raised in Germany and living on Maui since 1987, Christiane Santoro’s (aka Karuna) love affair with glass began over 30 years ago. Starting with regular stained glass and then glass mosaic, she was introduced to glass fusing in 2003 and has been hooked ever since.

Fascinated by the almost-opposing properties of glass — its fragility and strength, translucency and depth — Christiane loves to create pieces that add beauty and harmony to everyday life.
